Hectic school runs and tricky working hours are just a few of the things that could cause you to miss your parcel courier collection. However, there is an alternative thanks to the drop-off services you can book with many couriers to make life that little bit easier. Below are a couple of ways in which using a parcel drop off service can be really valuable.
Dropping off your parcel is super convenient
There’s over 25,000 drop off locations(DPD Pickup shops, UPS Access Points, Hermes ParcelShops and CollectPlus points) spanning the UK, including many in the larger shops you usually use such as Asda, Costcutter and Nisa, as well as independent corner shops, petrol stations and pharmacies.
Instead of waiting at home all day for the courier to pick up your parcel, you can drop your parcel off at the shop at the same time you get your milk. Use our handy guides to finding your nearest drop off points:
- Find your nearest DPD Pickup shop

- Find your nearest Collectplus store
A drop off courier service can save you money
Not only are they more convenient if you’re out during the day, drop off services are also cheaper than traditional parcel courier collection services. Wonder why? Well, instead of going from house to house collecting parcels your courier only has to go to the drop off point and collect all the parcels from one place. To put it simply, the savings that are made by the courier are passed directly over to you. Prices start from £2.79+VAT and even Next Day delivery begins as low as £6.75+VAT. So, your wallet will be happy with drop off delivery too.
Plenty of choice
Depending on what you’re sending, certain drop off services may be more suitable than others. So it always makes sense to look around for the best service for you. My Parcel Delivery currently offer over 10 different parcel drop off services, which vary on price, delivery times and also the weight allowed. DPD’s Drop Off service is a popular option which gives the receiver a one-hour delivery time slot and Parcelforce are currently offering an awesome 17% discount on their drop-off services (valid until the end of March 2016) - they’re a great option if you live near a Post Office and want to send a heavier parcel (up to 25kg).
So, if you want to say goodbye to waiting around all day for a courier, and hello to freedom of choice – compare prices and book a drop off delivery service with My Parcel Delivery.
